It is the nature of the brain or mind to continuously produce thoughts, otherwise you will become a yogi. It is also the nature of thought to wander or shift here and there. The problem is, you are not in a position to channellize them for a good purpose. I mean, have achievable aims or targets in life which could be helpful for the betterment of youself, your family and for the world. You will realize that your thoughts are really your boons.

Dear lybrate-user, You have to repeat HIV test again after the window period. But if you go on having unprotected intercourse, it is difficult to avoid HIV. Keep a thick condom always with you and use it during intercourse. Then if the test is negative, you are safe. Still, if you worry, it is health anxiety or HIV phobia that can be treated with therapy by any clinical psychologist or psychiatrist.

I am somewhat weak and I want to build up myself such that like that of heroes and build my body and my brain. I want to be very sharp in my studies and want to be more strong. This is my only tension. So suggest me please such that I can build my body and reduce my weight, trim my butts and etc and develop my memory without going to gym. Please suggest me fast.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
To reduce weight you have to diet and do exercises. You need to have diet plan based on your BMI & activities. Whatever we eat is metabolised by the body for the energy needed to do daily work and the excess is stored as fat. Abdomen is the first place to gain weight and last to disappear. In brief, Weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. And by appropriate exercise plans for each part like belly, thighs, legs / chest etc. To burn off fat. Some tips 1) Drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) Take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. As half of your diet. Then take 1/2 of your total diet as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. Should be just bare minimum. And do aerobic exercises, running, jogging or at least walking briskly 3-5 KMs and swimming if possible, and in a gym if feasible. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise & dieting to take just as mush food as needed for your activities. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity. It is better to do some tests.

One pound equals 3,500 calories. If you cut 500 a day from your diet, you'll lose a pound a week. People who lose weight slowly, about 1 to 2 pounds per week, are more successful at keeping the weight off. You'll also burn additional calories if you increase your physical activity. You weight-loss plan should do all of the following: •Emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat dairy products. •Include lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts. •Contain foods low in saturated fats, avoid trans fats, and limit cholesterol and salt (sodium). •Avoid refined sugars and processed foods. Some tips to help you lose weight: •Keep a food diary. Writing down everything you eat is critical! Noting how you feel when you eat will help you identify emotional triggers that may cause you to overeat. Emotional eaters tend to overeat. •Eat when you're truly hungry rather than when you're tired, anxious or stressed. •Eat slowly. If you eat too fast, you eat more than you need to satisfy your hunger. Your brain needs time to catch up with your stomach. •Plan your meals ahead of time so you make healthy choices. When dining out, check the menu online and decide what you will order before you sit down. Ask for dressings on the side. Opt for foods that are baked, broiled or steamed versus fried or swimming in creamy sauces. Avoid chips and bread baskets—they add unnecessary calories. •Stay hydrated. People often mistake thirst for hunger. •Eat breakfast. If you skip this meal, you'll be starving by lunchtime. You'll have more difficulty making healthy choices throughout the day.

Actually every human have different sensitivity levels and you are a veery sensitive person.Actually you trust other people very easily and so you think that allothers are also like you and you build high expectations from them and when this dont happen or those persons dont live upto your expectations,you feel bad for it .In that case you are to blame yourself and not others.just keep in mind that this world follows the rule of Give and take and there is no any space for emotions ,love and sacrifice other than few examples like you.So try to be materialitic in this materialistic world and always thinkby your mind and not your heart.Just be focused on your target and spend energy on achieving it rather than wasting your energy on these so called relations.

How Does Peer Pressure Influence Teenagers to have Sex?

MBBS, DGO, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MRCOG
Gynaecologist, Delhi
How Does Peer Pressure Influence Teenagers to have Sex?

Peer pressure is always difficult to deal with, especially when it comes to sex. Many girls feel the pressure from friends to have sex before they're ready, which is why it's so important to have the confidence to say no to something you don't feel ready to do.

Just because your friends are having sex or say they're having sex doesn't mean that you have to as well! you might feel like everyone is doing it but you will soon realize that this is not the case. Your friends may talk about sex in a casual manner. If you have a good group of friends, they should not be pressuring you into doing something that you're not ready to do.

Pressure from magazines, celebrities and peers can all contribute to the pressure that you may feel. On tv, sex is displayed in such a casual way, however you should remember that sex is actually a really big deal! you need to make sure that you're completely confident and comfortable with your decision if you do decide to have sex. Think carefully how you feel yourself about having sex, as this is the first step in handling the peer pressure. It's okay to have fun when you're a teenager, but equally you need to respect yourself enough to say no I'm not ready and your peers should respect that too. When making the decision to have sex, consider whether peer pressure is influencing your decision or if it's something that you have decided that you are ready to do. Once you've had sex for the first time you can't go back, so make sure it's a decision that you won't regret.

Remember that there is no certain age that you are expected to have sex a lot of people wait until they're married! everybody is different and will mature and feel ready at different ages, so just because your friend is doing it and feels ready now, this does not mean that you should feel that way too. Don't ever have sex just to fit in with your friends, as they will respect you more if you stick to your morals and don't do things just because you're pressured to.

If you're worried about peer pressure, know that you're not alone. Hang out with friends who understand you and also believe that it's okay to wait to have sex. If you're going on a first date, go along with friends so it's not just you and your date. This way, if you feel worried that you might be pressured into doing something you don't want to, you won't be alone. Think of what you would say in advance if anyone tries to pressure you in the future, so that you're not caught off guard or feel like you have to do something you don't want to. You are never obliged to have sex with someone, so even if they try to make you feel guilty never do something that you don't want to do, as it's always your decision. Sex is not something that you should rush into, so take your time until you feel 100% ready to take the next step. Respect yourself, your morals and your body and when the time is right to take the next step, you will know.

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Please consult a psychologist for more advice. Take care.

Well, you have not given the diagnosis and the medication she is on. If she is psychotic, then she has a permanent condition and you have to learn to live with her and it. The daughter is very important too and will carry the genes too. You should get some help like a nanny and may be a female nurse, especially when you go to work. You will have to learn to juggle between work, daughter, and your wife. Your wife must also go for counseling in combination with the medication. The counseling will help her cope with a lot of things in life and you could both sort your differences too. She must do regular exercises and have a full day with interesting activities. There may be a daycare center for her kind and you could keep her there for a good part of the day as an alternative.

How to lead a healthy life and become strong and fresh minded tell some steps and smart phones using will affect our physical strength.

M. sc Psychology, BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad
Good question Mr. Lybrate user. Keep it up. To maintan good quality of life, first of all, you need to focus on your diet intake, which should be home maqde, wel balanced with more proteins, less fats& carbohydrates, more fibre rich, like you can take all non. Veg items but fresh, home made, less spicy, less oily but not fried in oils, etc. If eggs, prefer white. If pure veg, you take, more dal, millets, spouts, dry fruits[even if you take, non. Veg also, you should take more veg is better}, milk morning & nigt before going to bed, replace sugar intake with jaggery or honey, take 3-4 litres of water/day. That too taking 1/2 litre to 1 litr in morning with empty stomach is very good for body as a cleanser. Do not forget to keep mind & body in qyilibrium by practicing yoga, pranayama, mediattion, breathing exercises, regularly& physically to become fit, do exercises, warm ups, playing some favourite spiort regularly is good. Try to avid alcohol, smoking max. If any tea habit, its okay if 1-2 times, but reduce more than 2 times if its or, try to replace with lemon tea, or green tea. Avoid junk/fatty/packed/fast/spicy/oily/out side/canned food& drinks, like carbonated rinks. Take more green leafy veg, veg, in your diet. Avoid using smart phones usage at maximum at your level, I know now a days, its must for everybody, for every thing, so try to limit to certain period on urself, use ear phones max. Whenever you need to listen or talk. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user yours is a very serious problem which takes the quality life away from its victim. You must have consulted many doctors and I am sure no one suggested a permanent solution to this. Currently you are depressed with so much pains and your reaction is quite natural. But, this is not going to solve the problem any how. Homoeopathy can offer you good alternative and it can help you a lot. It is very much possible to cure your problem with homeopathic medicines. Right now I am suggesting some medicines for you and if you feel better in any sense then contact me, I will solve your problem 1. Aurum metallicum 6/thrice daily/1 day take this medicine for one day and report after 7 days of this. Observe properly of any slight changes after this medicine and let me know about it.

I love him very much but he has no love on me. It's arranged marriage for both. Please suggest me.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
HE seems to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm or breaking articles and hurting others physically and emotionally. They have love-hate relationship with close ones. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.
